AURORA, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A gas leak closed part of a street Tuesday afternoon in west suburban Aurora.

Farnsworth Avenue was closed between Molitor and Reckinger roads after a construction crew hit a line, causing a gas leak, according to Aurora spokesman Dan Ferrelli.

As of about 5 p.m., the southbound lanes of Farnsworth have been reopened, but the northbound lanes will stay closed for another four hours until the leak is repaired, Ferrelli said.

NICOR is on the scene and advises drivers to find other routes.
